workers and people from the energy department because the long island public authority has failed miserably. they are not doing their job or communicating with the people. i hope to set up a federal intra structure led by the army corps of engineers that would have a comprehensive plan which they would be required to follow. it's an absolute disgrace. we're now two weeks into the storm, and there's still over 100,000 people without power, and with no real estimate as to when they're going to get back, getting misleading information, getting distorted information. just yesterday they told people they needed contractor's approval. they said that wasn't enough. it really has reached crisis proportions of a public health dimension in suffolk county, on the south shore in particular, and lipa is absolutely act says disgracefully, and that's why i'm asking the president whatever assistance he can give, not just for personnel, but farce trying to come up with a comprehensive plan that will knock l.i.s.a. into shape. >> congressman peter king, we wish you well. certainly all the people of
these are -- we've just got to do a better job with that. so, i think it's a lot of energy that still helps us immensely at the polls and getting people out. we've got to outorganize on the ground. >> tea party patriots jenny beth martin, had this to say about mitt romney. here she is. >> we wanted a fighter like ronald reagan. what we got was a weak, moderate candidate, hand picked by the beltway elites and country club establishment wing of the republican party. the presidential loss is unequivocally on them. >> what's your response to that? >> well, i respectfully disagree. this is the way the process works. we have 20 debates and the people chose. mitt romney is an incredibly smart, talented, decent guy who worked very hard and i thought was a good messenger for our cause. that was a dead heat. going into the election. in fact, two weeks ago, before the hurricane, erin, we were up by three to five points in swing states and we thought we were heading towards a victory, so i'm not going to recriminate. we've just got to realize what he did right, wrong, improve and do a better job of delive
energy or high-tech manufacturing don't end up in countries like china. now, already i've put forward a detailed plan that allows us to make these investments while reducing our deficit by $4 trillion over the next decade. i want to be clear, i'm not weded to every detail of my plan. i'm open to compromise. i'm open to new ideas. i'm committed to solving our fiscal challenges. but, i refuse to accept any approach that isn't balanced. i'm not going to ask students and seniors and middle class families to pay down the entire deficit while people like me making over $250,000 aren't asked to pay a dime more in taxes. i'm not going to do that. and i just want to point out, this was a central question during the election. it was debated over and over again, and on tuesday night we found out that the majority of americans agree with my approach. and that includes democrats, independents and a lot of republicans across the country, as well as independent economists and budget sperpts. that's how you reduce the deficit. with a balanced approach. so our job now is to get a majority in congress
, energy, education. a whole host of issues he is focused on. that you heard him talk about during the entire campaign. >> he's been one of the unsung heroes. i think his vice presidential debate was fantastic. he has given the president a yin/yang. he must be feeling pretty proud, isn't he? >> well, i think he is. i am. he played think important role in this campaign. the vice presidential debate came at a time when there was a bit of a slide, if you look at some of the polls. and, you know, he stopped that. i was very proud of him in that debate. i was very proud of him what he did throughout the country over the last six, eight months. he was in the battleground state of ohio dozens of times, all over the battleground states and spoke directly to the middle class about what this president has done and what this president will do to continue to build this economy from the middle out and the bottom up. i don't think there's a better spokesperson on behalf of the president and the party and with what the administration wants to do over the next four years, my father, i was extremel
outlined are energy reform and education reform. now, given the realities of the political situation in washington, education reform seems to be more likely to get bipartisan cooperation. but the president can do quite a bit using his executive authority to achieve some changes in energy policy on his own. you mentioned a foreign trip that is right. the president and the white house have announced he will be going in about ten days overseas. he will visit cambodia and thailand and myanmar where he will visit with the now freed leader aun san su kyi. >> he had a phone call yesterday with the republican leadership with john boehner, the senate republican leader mitch mcconnell. is he planning on sitting down with those two republican leaders any time soon? is the white house saying? >> reporter: there's nothing announced for a leaders meeting so far. but i am certain, wolf, that that will be coming because there's such important negotiations ahead. i'm told that the president's conversation with speaker boehner was courteous, it was brief. and i'm told that they also discussed the impo
think that it can be done, but, frankly, we need to change the scope of our energies and the scope of our commitments. >> you see, this is not an attempt by the republicans to do something and fail. this is the lack of the attempt of the republicans to do anything at all. the first state race, state race i ever worked on was the united states senate seat in 1996. and i asked, you know, very naively, why don't we go to black churches? well, they will never vote for us. why don't we retreat to students and young people. those people never vote. well, here we are in 2012 and that is a completely different story and we need to make the attempt. >> but what i heard al say, and what president obama won because he promised free things and i don't want to misquote you there, but i'm not sure if it is a promise of free things. when i hear people saying that they voted for president obama because they wanted things, why else do you vote for a candidate if you don't want something from the candidate? >> let me tell you something, obama won this election and everybody back up and calm down, an
the scope of our energies and the scope of our commitment. >> so maybe it's a messaging problem, like patrick just said. with the -- is it conservative views or is it the messengers or both? what do you think? >> initially, it's the message. we have this tendency of telling people what we're not going to do. we don't tell them why. we say we're the party of lower taxes. but we don't say because we want people not to be able to be addicted to government but be able to make a living. newt got a big controversy about -- talking about food stamps. one of the things food stamps represents is the lack of freedom. that's the federal government -- people -- they tell you what you can spend with those food stamps. you can or can't buy -- we don't do a positive message of saying, we want you to have more freedom. >> when you talk about food stamps and those sorts of issues, are those issues or messages that you run on that are losing messages? do people really want to talk about that? when you focus on issues like food stamps or entitlements? al and then patrick? >> listen, we live in a differe
